Apprentice, Chloe earns 7th place in the UKs Top 50 Women in Engineering under 35

The Annual International Women in Engineering Day took place on Friday 23rd June.

This day focuses attention on the amazing careers in engineering and technical roles for girls, and is opportunity for employers to celebrate the achievements of their most outstanding women engineers.

As part of the annual celebrations, the Telegraph newspaper, in collaboration with the Women’s Engineering Society compiled a list of the Top 50 Women in Engineering.  We are thrilled to announce that our very own Chloe Branston, CAD apprentice based in Radar Road, achieved a place on the list. In fact Chloe not only earned herself a position in the Top 50, but she achieved a very worthy 7th position.

Simon Bowen, Chief Executive said, “This is a fantastic achievement for Chloe and really well deserved. Women in Engineering Day is a really important day for us to celebrate our female engineers and to raise the profile of engineering as a great career choice for future generations. We are really very proud of Chloe’s achievements; she is without doubt an exemplary role model for aspiring female engineers”.

The list attracted well over 500 aspiring female engineers this year. Kirsten Bodley, Chief Executive of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), the organisation that founded International Women in Engineering Day, commented:

“We had a very high response to the campaign this year and were hugely impressed with the entries. This list of inspirational younger women shows the breadth and depth of talent and innovation across all engineering sectors. It is a great way of encouraging the next generation to enter the engineering and allied sectors and for women to succeed there.”
